Analysis / Bias
At the time of this review the website is under 10 days old, yet has 23 pages of content. In review, America’s News Source blatantly plagiarizes whole articles from other sources. For instance, this unsourced story After Years Of Trashing Trump Robert De Niro’s Criminal Child Sex Secrets Come Tumbling Out, is copied word for word from another fake news source called Daily USA News. In another story, Michelle Obama Assembles 2020 ‘Voting Squad’ – It’s Packed With Hollywood Millionaires, they copy directly from the Patriot Journal. In general, stories favor extreme right positions and often denigrate the left and promote President Donald Trump.
Despite being less than 10 days old at the time of this review, America’s News Source has already achieved a Pants on Fire Claim.
